Fri 14th Feb

This week Year 4 having been baking delicious biscuits. The recipe is a simple one, requiring only three ingredients.

 

To make 16 biscuits:

You will need two baking trays

100g (4oz) of softened butter

50g (2oz) of caster sugar

150g (6oz) of self-raising flour


  

Preheat the oven to 180°C /fan 160°C/ gas 4. 

Lightly butter two baking trays. (We used greaseproof paper)

Measure the butter into a bowl and beat to soften. 

Gradually beat in the sugar and then the flour. 

Bring the mixture together with your hands to form a dough. 

Form the dough into 16 balls about the size of a walnut and place spaced well apart on the prepared baking trays. 

Dip a fork in a little water and use this to flatten the biscuits.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15–20 minutes until a very pale golden. 

Lift off the baking tray and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.


After baking our biscuits, we dipped them in chocolate and sprinkled on hundreds and thousands.


We wrapped them in tissue paper and took them home for our families in decorated boxes.
